Over 30 volunteers from SGI's charity group along with HFHI staff, engineers directly worked on mortar, wall and plasterings in three households to help needy people have a decent place to live. Old houses would be replaced by new, safe houses.

“For Koreans, the meaning of house is special. A house is not just a place for meals and sleep, but a place of hope, good memories and security for someone”, shared Se Joon Huh, Seoul Guarantee Insurance managing director on the occasion of house dedication ceremony on April 4th.

It has been providing guarantee services through reinsurance companies to South Korean companies and individuals in Vietnam as well as local companies./.
